Literotica? Are you sure you want to go down that path Michael? It’s psychological thrillers you’re writing, not Chick-Lit!
Why not include literotica in a story about sex and murder?
Sex is suspenseful, right? Good sex is extremely suspenseful. And they say sex starts in the brain and moves outwards. So why not take the suspense from one act of life and then tie it to another, like crime, so readers can be taken to places they’d never expect? Sex is a normal part of life and good erotica isn’t exclusive to books of tease. Sometimes sex and sexual attraction are there to take characters on a completely relatable journey in other types worlds, like the novels you find in the psychological thrillers genre – reflecting life’s adventures in the art of creative writing. (Or is it the other way around?)
Lori Beeton (a reader) said my literotica was very feminine in comparison to other male writers. (She’s also read a lot of Dean Koontz by the way.) She says I take my time to set the moment and don’t rush to get business done.
It’s true, I do hold back. That’s because once intercourse begins, it’s pretty much over. The only enticement left in the bag of writing tricks is to elevate sex to a new and higher level and to take some time getting it there. That’s okay but let’s face it, that first deep kiss, that first penetration of a c*ck into a warm p*ssy, is the highest plane of sex for many of us – well beyond the words of mere mortals. It’s such a sweet and magical leap… but the next few jumps aren’t so big. Bigger thrusts, kinkier positions and sweatier actions are much like those that came before, only bigger, kinkier and sweatier. First contact is what it’s all about baby! Savour that!
So I use the tease before sexual intercourse to draw the reader in and hook them in tight. I like sex too but I love everything about what comes before it, that includes the odours, the twitches in the flesh, the flash of knickers, the lure of a set of seductive eyes. I love the actions a women makes with her body when she lifts a T-shirt over her head. Hell, I could write a whole chapter on the removal of a bloody T-shirt!But SEETHINGS is more than removing shirts and throwing in tantalizing literotica. There is a seriously twisted narrative that supports it, taking you on a wild ride of sex and murder. Just as you think the sex can’t get any hotter, a surprise arrives to change all you believe in love and intimacy.
Do read SEETHINGS this year. You won’t find a better psycho-thriller all year!
Michael Forman’s books on Goodreads ratings: 4 (avg rating 4.50)
‘Forman’s writing style is artful, with the protagonist Mitchell’s warped thought processes masterfully exposed. The author has a powerful and vivid command of language and his word pictures are stark and disturbingly real.’ – Linda J Bettenay, author of ‘Secrets Mothers Keep’ and ‘Wishes For Starlight’
